Should they nerf The Bee?

#51MenuWarsPosted 10/6/2012 9:41:27 AM
All they need to do is divide the amp damage the Bee shield gives by the number of bullets or pellets fired per shot. It would nerf the all conquering CC+Bee combo and allow the shield to still be useful for High Rate of fire weapons and such. Meaning it'd take a minute and some skill to kill Terra instead of 30 seconds or less and none.

I don't really care if they Nerf it or not, but I don't think they should break it completely or they may aswell remove it from the game completely.

It's not a dumb counter-argument. It's actually smarter than saying "Oh, people use this i countless games that have zero effect on my gameplay, so it should be nerfed into the Earth's core." How stupid do you sound?

Duping is fine then, right? No need to fix that?

Modding is fine then, right? No need to fix that?

It's a single player game. Nuff said.


Tell that to Diablo 3. Things getting nerfed right under your feet.

I don't think The Bee should be nerfed. There is no "oops, unintended damage." Gearbox knew exactly what they were doing with The Bee. You don't make a shield with amp damage minus the drain only to nerf it because it turned out too strong. Well no **** it's strong, It's amp damage without the drain. .

Everyone is overlooking the simplest nerf while still keeping the sheild unique

A little less amp damage.

Fixed.

D3's reasoning of nerfs is completely different to actual games being nerfed, since Blizzard just nerfs items in that game to keep the RMAH relevant.

Yes, raid bosses should take more than 7 seconds.

Badass ass should take more than 1 hit. Honestly with the Bee equipped this is the easiest FPS I've ever played in my entire life.

Stuff like this is all that's being requested, and would fix the game completely. Nothing big enough to where The Bee becomes another random green amp shield.

They may have not intended tediore reloads and all shotgun pellets hitting with amp damage. There are a ton of items in this game and thinking everything works perfectly as intended is just gullibility.

There were nerfs and buffs in the first borderlands and no one gave a damn. Also there were broken class mods and people just wanted them fixed.

No I have never defended the Bee, you must be suffering from sleep deprivation, find a single post of me defending the overpowered Bee and ill pay you a million dollars.
